    I'm a new owner of the MES 30. I've just seens ads for the Char-Broil Big Easy Electric Smoker and Roaster and I'm thinking, hmmm, for a few more bucks I could have had an electric smoker/roaster/grill all in one.

    Is there a consensus among the budget-minded electric smoker owners like me over which is preferred--MES or Char-Broil?

    I am looking hard at one for my motorhome. I saw an ad for them at Lowes for $129 thru the end of May

    At my local Lowes they're going for $199, which $10 more than I paid for the MES. I'm still keeping my smoker because since I got it from, it would be way too big a hassle to re-package it and send it back, even if it is $10 less now than what I paid for it.
